Crescent House Design by Make Architects

July 22, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Designed by Make Architects, located in Wiltshire, United Kingdom. The Crescent House exemplifies how a novel form can fulfill the requirements of a brief better than a conventional box. As a shape, the crescent is ideally suited to personal living space, because it shelters and encloses while at the same time opening out and forging a sense of connection with the exterior world. The accommodation is formed by two nested crescents connected by a curving circulation and gallery space that runs the length of the building. The outer crescent contains bedrooms, bathrooms and private living areas and turns a solid convex wall to the nearby road, while the inner crescent is devoted to cooking, eating and relaxing. A full-height concave glass wall draws the early morning sun into the house and offers an uninterrupted prospect of the garden, while the arms of the inner crescent extend to frame the view, offering privacy and enclosure without confinement.

Private Residence in London by Make Architects

July 11, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Designed by Make Architects, located in London. The external envelope has been restored to its original massing with the interior completely reconfigured to reconnect the house with its gardens. Light, vistas and selected glimpses of the grounds beyond are drawn through the interior and a new extension capped by an undulating roof reinforces this vital relationship between the house and its setting. Contemporary detailing captures the original spirit of the house’s design, with the understated modernity of the scheme complemented by a warm palette of traditional materials such as bronze, oak and brick.
